Kicks Condor down?

Looks like Kicks Condor, the eclectic and whimsical link-blog, has been taken off-line by Walt Disney.

Uh oh.

Hope this can be resolved. Kicks Condor was a great way to find new and interesting stuff to read.

EDIT: I think there is more to this than meets the eye.

EDIT 2: Clicking on the Disney logo brings up this message:

Okay – it’s pretty clear that this isn’t an aggressive shake-down by Disney. Whatever it is, it has gone way over my head.

Love what you do

I enjoyed this post by Kev Quirk, on the importance of doing work that you love.

If you’re working in a job you’re not happy with, move on. Even if you have to take a step back in your career, it’s so worth it in the long run.

It’s something I’ve thought about a lot over the past few years. I certainly don’t love my job. I can’t remember the last time I woke up raring to go in – it’s just what I’ve done for twenty-odd years. It pays the bills, it’s secure, and I’m good at it (or at least not bad at it).

Is that enough?

In need of adventure

Read Jane’s short account of her small camping adventure on Harlosh Island and then weep about how rubbish your week has been:

We loaded our kayaks with all we would need for the night and made the short paddle across from Harlosh to Harlosh Island where we set up camp for the night. We spent a lovely afternoon exploring the island and swimming.

If that got you in the mood for adventure, head straight over to read Katie Tunn’s comprehensive tips for quick outdoor adventures.

It’s been a good few years now since I’ve done any wild camping. Both of these popped up in my feeds today. Someone, somewhere, is trying to tell me something..
